Putting the squeeze on competitors like DEC, IBM is taking advantage of its enormous in-house memory chip manufacturing capacity to slash the price of memory for the 9370s, AS/400s and System 36. The cuts on 9370 memory are a sizzling 40%, so 4Mb is now $6,000, 8Mb $12,000; monthly rentals on memory are also cut 40%. The cuts and new prices for AS/400 memory are exactly the same, so 16Mb is off 40% at $16,000 (there’s likely to be little, if any, difference bar the part number, between the boards). On the 5363 System 36, 2Mb is reduced 25% to $1,500.
